Nephew Akhilesh Yadav has gifted the best birthday gift to Mayawati – Know What

Both SP and BSP had skipped oath-taking ceremonies of Congress’ chief ministers. It triggered speculations that everything is not well in the Opposition camp that is claiming to be confident to take on Narendra Modi in 2019.

An alliance between Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections is expected to be announced next month. The formal announcement will be made on Mayawati’s birthday on January 15, 2019. Rashtriya Lok Dal of Ajit Singh will also be a part of this alliance. Akhilesh and Mayawati have decided to keep room for OP Rajbhar as he can join the grand alliance. Rajbhar is presently a minister in the Yogi Adityanath government.

Both parties had virtually contested Uttar Pradesh by-polls together along with Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal. The BSP had extended its support to Akhilesh Yadav’s party candidates. The by-polls were held in May this year. SP had wrested both Phulpur and Gorakhpur from the BJP.

Why PM Narendra Modi Met With Samajwadi Party Biggies Ramgopal Yadav And Naresh Agrawal?

On Wednesday evening, as the country was gripped by an intense political drama caused by Nitish Kumar’s shock resignation playing out on TV, Delhi’s Ashoka hotel was the scene of much mirth and back slapping.

The occasion: a party to celebrate Samajwadi Party biggie Ram Gopal Yadav’s 25 years in parliament and thrown by senior leader Naresh Agarwal. And present were the who’s who in the capital led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

As parties go, it couldn’t have been more lustrous. Present along with PM were senior cabinet ministers, notably Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, former PM Manmohan Singh and an array of opposition luminaries.

Conspicuously absent though were members of the extended Yadav clan. While Bihar strongman Lalu Yadav was smarting from being dumped by one-time friend-turned-foe-turned –friend Kumar and predictably could not attend the party, neither did Ram Gopal Yadav’s nephew Akhilesh Yadav nor his cousin brothers Mulayam or Shivpal.

People at the party told Power Circuit that Modi, who came in around 8 pm (while the Nitish drama was being played out in full force) and was there for more than an hour amid dinner, was in great mood laughing and posing for selfies & pictures.

After why not.. Just a few hours before, he had engineered the biggest Ghar Wapsi of all times: the return of Nitish Kumar to the NDA fold that has left an already beleaguered opposition completely rudderless.

Understanding Uttar Pradesh Elections In A Little More Detail

When Mulayam Singh Yadav announced the termination of his son, Akhilesh Yadav, for 5-years from the party, the family feud was out in the open. And what followed next was the demonstration of power to become the next “Netaji” of the party.

With the first phase of elections on the horizon in Uttar Pradesh, every party is busy making their strategy to get hold of that power seat.

This time, Uttar Pradesh elections are strategically most complexed polls the history will ever witness. Samajwadi Party, which has been sailing in rough tide for the last 2 months, Akhilesh Yadav had a tough time setting-things-up again. From making up his annoyed father to look out for a new alliance, everything falls short for him.

Akhilesh Yadav, who was in turmoil when his father showed him the exit gate of the party, was soon seen to find new ways to claim what it’s his inheriting right, the party command. Soon, the Samajwadi Party has seen the two centres of powers.

With Akhilesh entry as a party chief in Samajwadi Party, creates a rift between the father and son, what followed next was the cold-war, not by directly attacking each other, but by gestures.

Netaji’s distances himself from the party campaigning in Uttar Pradesh is another one of the problems for Akhilesh Yadav. Netaji association with the party for decades had served the foundation on which Akhilesh Yadav is standing today. Netaji’s discontent with the new chief is expected, but without Netaji’s blessing, the young prince of Uttar Pradesh will have a really hard time to sail through the storm.

Akhilesh, who projected himself as the man of development, soon realised this alone won’t help him to come into power again. Meanwhile, Netaji’s U-turn on not supporting any of the campaigns for Akhilesh Yadav is not to be taken as much surprise. The saying, “Nothing is permanent” is the thumb rule in the politics, that’s why the two most rival in Bihar, Nitish and Lalu shaken hands, and a similar situation was seen in Uttar Pradesh as well, Rahul Gandhi-Akhilesh Pact. This pact is seen to wash off the “Modi wave” in the state.

The other challenge that Akhilesh would face in the elections is to keep their voters intact i.e Muslim vote. The Muslim vote in the state accounts for 19%, minus the polarisation of votes. Which is enough to make any party to sit on the thrones of Uttar Pradesh,

The Bhartiya Janata Party

BJP is fighting battles in itself, 10 times more than what Samajwadi Party. From the distribution of tickets to outsiders to the party’s workers conduct on the decision, these all things are coming out from time to time.

For instance, a news printed in The Indian Express, recently when Rita Bahuguna Joshi, who was a prominent face in congress, joins BJP last year, was declined by the Kshetra Pracharak of eastern UP Shiv Narayan, when she visited the RSS office in Lucknow.

The other thing which BJP is fighting is not having a prominent Chief Ministerial Candidate for the state. Not having announced any chief minister face, and the on-going discontent within the party members and the workers will make it hard for the party to make it hard for the party to have an easy boat ride.

Another instance where BJP is struggling hard is disgruntled party’s workers on the distribution of tickets to the outsiders, Swamy Prasad Maurya, for instance, is on party worker’s line of fire. The party worker, for a long time, has been registering their discontent against the party’s decision on giving preference to outsiders. As a major portion of the BJP’s candidate list has been made by the outsiders, and being a sitting MLA makes an easy choice for the party.

UP elections to take a major turn, Big leaders all set to change parties

The upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections never seemed so interesting before. With each passing day we are witnessing a totally different scenario.
Be it the Yadav clan war which turned out with a totally different picture of what we expected. Or be it Durga shakti nagpal’s most awaited entry into the UP politics.
Now, something even more interesting is going to happen!

All the top notches of different parties are all set to deflect from their own party. The reason? We are still in a quest to find out. According to the exclusive NLC reports, top party leaders such as Naresh Aggarwal, Amar Pal Sharma, Ashok Pradhan and few others are deflecting from their own parties.

NLC confirms this news first . Naresh Aggarwal former power minister UP is all Set to join BJP after 10 of November whereas BJP top brass projecting amar pal sharma (BSP Mla from Gaziabad) next candidate to cutting Rajnath’s son candidature .

Ashok Pradhan former BJP minister now SP heavy weight is also expected to join BSP. These deflections are definitely going to give a major turn and totally change the face of whatever forecasts we had for the elections.

These Uttar Pradesh elections are definitely going to be the game changer as well as the most unpredictable elections ever!

Mythologically and Historically, Yadav clans have always fought among themselves when it comes to gaining power!

The inter-party war between Shivpal Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav seems like an everyday affair now. Every time you switch to your television, social accounts, twitter or Facebook you will see a whole new controversy going along the party.
For the second time in the last month, Akhilesh Yadav has sacked uncle Shivpal Yadav as a minister, dramatically escalating the family drama that has enveloped the First Family of the ruling party in Uttar Pradesh just before the state votes.
The 43-year-old Chief Minister’s exercise of authority is a direct retort to his father, Mulayam, who leads the Samajawadi Party and has been promoting Shivpal over his son.
After the whole melodrama of Shivpal Yadav resigning from the party and then Akhilesh Yadav declining his reign, here is a new u-turn in the story. More than two thousand SP workers resigned in just two hours, soon after Shivpal Yadav sacked seven close associates of Akhilesh Yadav.
Along with Shivpal, 61, three other ministers close to him have also been benched.
The move today bolsters talk of the 24-year-old Samajawadi Party being positioned for a split, with Akhilesh and Mulayam as rival leaders, just ahead of assembly elections in up to be held early next year. However, sources close to the younger Yadav said he has stressed he respects his father’s leadership and does not want to challenge it and will attend a huge celebration planned early next month for the party’s 25th anniversary.
“Those opposing Akhilesh will not see the face of the Vidhan Sabha. Where there is Akhilesh, there is victory,” said a statement from Ram Gopal Yadav, who is a cousin of Mulayam’s but has been championing Akhilesh as the “true and most popular leader” of the party.

The four-time MLA joined the saffron party in presence of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah in New Delhi and claimed that if he received ample support from the party’s leadership, then it would come to power in the state with a strong majority.

Maurya, who was the Leader of the Opposition in the state assembly before he left BSP in June, said he was impressed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s work to empower the weaker sections and lashed out at BSP chief Mayawati for turning her party into an “industrial house” and allegedly selling tickets
Sources even confirmed that we also see some surprise names on the 11 MLA’s list (which includes some big and one time loyal leaders from different parties). The assembly polls are due early next year.

What made IAS Raman so clean despite being posted at the most corrupt department?

Noida’s famous Officer or we can say lifeline of NDMC Rama Raman who was serving Noida Developmental Authority , Greater Noida Developmental Authority and Yamuna Expressway developmental Authority as a chief executive officer (CEO) needs to step down from his current position after Allahabad Court ordered him. Mr.Rama Raman or famously known as ‘The Blue Eyed Boy’ is working for  Noida Developmental Authority and  Greater Noida Developmental Authority as a CEO for past six years. He was also given the extra responsibility as the Yamuna Expressway Developmental Authority’s chairman and was relieved from all of his duty’s immediately on Monday after Allahabad High Court interfered in the matter.

Last week, the court had taken a grim view of Raman’s continuance in the coveted posts for the last six years and had questioned whether the state government could not find anyone better to replace him. Despite being the most corrupt and tempting authority Raman has managed to stay ‘clean’. As a matter of fact, all the bureaucrats are facing corruption charges against them. Earlier this year, Noida Developmental Authority Chief Engineer Yadav Singh also faced corruption charges of 1000 crores by CBI.

Mr. Rama Raman was appointed by the Mayawati Government in 2010 and remained in the position for six years straight even after the government changed in 2012. Raman was the apple of every government’s eye. He served as the oxygen to SP and BSP government. Now, Principal Secretary (Power) and Chairman of the UP Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) Sanjay Agarwal has been given the charge of the three authorities. We wish him good luck!
